What were this year’s top trends in race and pop culture?

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

As you may know, at the end of every year I write up a series of posts dissecting the top 10 trends in race and pop culture. You can see last year’s list here.

I already have good list going (think: nooses, the new yellow peril, etc.), but I wanted to ask for your input. What trends do you think should be included in the top 10? What smaller trends do you think are worth an honorable mention?
